* ''[[VideoGame/{{Oddworld}} Oddworld: Abe's Exoddus]]'' has Soulstorm Brew, a delicious soft drink sold by the Magog Cartel. Unfortunately, it's as addictive as heroin and the [[CorruptCorporateExecutives glukkons]] use this to obtain mudokon slaves to work the the brewery and joint facilites. In addition, the brew also contains powdered mudokon bones to add a [[ImAHumanitarian cannibalistic]] vibe to it.

Abe, the player character, is for unexplained reasons resistant to it. Instead, brew gives him literally explosive flatulence.

* Zig-zag: ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' story "Everything Must Go" (DC issue #44) has Mojo Jojo holding a yard sale of all his weaponry. The girls start answering calls to calamaties caused by people not knowing how to properly use the weapons they bought. They confront Mojo about it, but he's merely conducting a yard sale under the "supply and demand" dichotomy. It's not his fault people are misusing the stuff.


Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'': The 2016 episode "Fashion Forward" has the criminal duo the Fashionistas marketing a new bandanna. The Professor forbids the girls from having one, but Blossom secretly does. When she puts it on, she falls under the Fashionistas' hypnotic control.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheOblongs''. The kids get rich selling a sugar-laden energy drink everyone loves. It's obvious the drink is a horrifically unhealthy mess, but it turns out to be much, much worse. They used discarded 'morphine bottles' from the local hospital for their containers; the remnants of the morphine is what the people really wanted.

* Renuyu in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' allowed anyone to look young again... but if you stop using it, you suffer horrible pain and deformity. When an overdose was applied to a particularly recalcitrant actor, he became Clayface.
** Your mileage may vary. Matt Hagen, the actor, was using the material to hide the injuries he sustained in an accident. It's up in the air how much of the his pain/deformity was caused by the original scars or related angst, and how much was directly caused by Renuyu

* {{Downplayed}} and played for laughs, then subverted in ''Literature/TheLaundrySeries''. Apparently Apple puts a low-level glamour on their products that makes people want to buy them. In ''The Fuller Memorandum'' Bob falls for it and buys an iPhone. [[spoiler:It ends up saving his life after his friend installs anti-monster apps on it without permission.]]

* A surprising number of people are convinced that the artificial sweetener aspartame, often used in diet soda, is extremely harmful, or going to control their minds, and that there is a massive conspiracy to cover this up. Though a certain percentage of the population may develop headache and/or upset stomach upon ingestion due to an inability to properly metabolize phenylalanine (one of the chemicals into which aspartame breaks down), fueling the conspiracy theories further. A study did prove that using too much increases cancer risk considerably, but bear in mind that the lethal dose was equivalent to a human drinking hundreds of cans of diet cola ''per day'', so one dose in a cup of coffee per day shouldn't be an issue for anyone.
